North

“You have been wandering around in this hill country long enough; turn to the north.” Deuteronomy 2:3 NLT

North

I’ve been struggling with the same decision for years. Round and round I go debating. Up and down I go on the emotional roller coaster. Sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be a right or wrong answer.

I’ve never been good with directions. Once one of my brothers made the comment I’d get lost crossing the street. Sadly, he may not have been teasing. I get in the car and think I’m going East when I end up West of where I began.

Recently, my husband and I went on an outing. I brought along the GPS for help. The voice in the GPS said, “Turn North.” My husband looked at me, as he smiled and said, “Kysia, where’s North?” I just pointed to the sky.   After all isn’t North always up? We both laughed, amused with my directionally challenged mind.

Today though, when I stumbled across this verse from Deuteronomy 2:3, “You have been wandering around in this hill country long enough; turn to the north.” I thought about my finger pointing “North”. Maybe, I wasn’t as off as I thought I was. I’ve been wondering through my own hill country. It’s time I turned North and trusted my decision completely to my Master Planner. If there still doesn’t seem to be an answer, He may just be asking me to jump out on faith and make a decision. Regardless if I turn to the left or right, he’s going to travel with me. Thankfully, he’s not directionally challenged.
